your forearms are sore? or your hands?

Check this out from American Council on Exercise (ACE):

“A strong correlation exists between grip strength and upper-body strength. Therefore, working grip strength exercises can improve arm strength. Furthermore, grip strength is often the limiting factor in some exercises (both upper and total body) such as dead lifts, pull-ups and kettlebell exercises. Thus, arm strength can enhance lower-body strength and power. So, when the following exercises result in forearm and hand fatigue, that’s a sign that they are being performed correctly.”

So, the next time you are on the barbell, dumbbells, or the pull-up bar, and your hands or forearms fatigue, you are doing it right!  #WellDone #StrongArms
